N. Korea Says UNSC Resolution Will Trigger Corresponding Measures

N. Korea Says UNSC Resolution Will Trigger Corresponding Measures

North Korea threatened Friday to take “corresponding measures” if the United Nations Security Council adopts a new punitive resolution on the country.
The response from North Korea came as the UN council is moving to impose another set of sanctions on North Korea for its test-launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile last week, Yonhap News Agency reported.
“Should the UNSC adopt another ‘resolution on sanctions’, this will trigger corresponding measures by the DPRK and (the North will) respond to the ‘resolution’ with its act of justice,” a spokesman of the foreign ministry was quoted by the North’s state-run Korean Central News Agency as saying.
The successful launch of Hwasong-14 “has fully demonstrated the will and capability of the DPRK (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea) to annihilate the US in a single blow to the very heart of its mainland in case it fails to act with discretion,” the report said, arguing the US is behind the UN move.
“It is time for the US to renew its perspective on the DPRK’s strategic position which has reached dazzling heights ... However, it is inviting its ultimate doom by resorting to the sanctions and pressure campaign against the DPRK,” it also said. “It will be a fatal mistake to consider any chance that the DPRK which rose to a dignified nuclear power and an ICBM state would tolerate the reckless ‘sanctions’ racket of the US and other hostile forces,” according to the report.
